It was only a matter of time before Flickr went the same way as Photobucket and it seems to have come around. The 1TB limit is no longer mentioned, instead they will limit free accounts to 1000 photos. If you have more, you will need to subscribe at $49.99 per annum.
However you may feel about subscription versus free products, please be prepared rather than get caught out at the last moment.
Thanks for the heads-up Martin. I don't use Flickr although I do have a paid subscription for Photobucket even though I don't use it so much now. I used to use it for linking images to RPF, but tend to upload them directly to the forum these days. For my main, non-commercial, imaging activities I have a website although I rarely link to images from that.
I will almost certainly use my Photobucket account to add images to posts here, which reminds me that I must take a picture of my systems and post them. It'll have to be Germany first though as that's where I am at the moment which means I'd better tidy up the studio tomorrow!
